The Franklin Township Middle School East World Cultures Club & 6th grade PRIDE classes hosted Japan 'Peace' Fellow sponsored by the National Consortium of Teaching About Asia, Mrs. Lisa Laker, who is also a teacher at Franklin Central High School on September 27. Students learned about Japanese culture and tried their hand at calligraphy, paper crane origami, and Zen meditation during the workshops. Students learned to bow out of respect, and they plan to practice it with their teachers and Principal Huotari! The main message of the workshop was to spread the spirit of peace! FTMS East World Cultures Club is sponsored by Mr. Matt Laker, who wore a Hanshin Tigers jersey and hat to showcase the Japanese love of baseball--just like Mr. Laker!

The senior We the People Government Honors class at Franklin Central was fortunate enough to be invited to the first of three Indiana Gubernatorial debates this year. We attended the event at Lawrence North High School, along with other Indianapolis area high schools. Mr. Tim Sokolowski, Social Studies, received multiple compliments from the Lawrence North administration, Indiana Debate Commission, Indiana State Bar Association, and Indiana Bar Foundation about how the Franklin Central students presented themselves before, during, and after the debate. A few of them were even interviewed by local news stations! The students loved it! It really got them excited for the upcoming election on November 8th, and our upcoming regional competition on November 9th! A great experience for the students, being able to see democracy in action! Pictured below are the 23 students before we took off to see the action!
